I need to declare my undying love for Jimbo aka its.like.that :inlove:

I felt a thread was necessary for not only me to go public with my love for Jimbo, but for him to know the absolute joy he brings to us all. Therefore, I open this thread (which we hope to elevate to chat status-which is where you guys come in) for you all to post your messages, stating your admiration for the mighty Australian.

Jimbo, we love you man :worship:

It should be the Swans and Port being triumphant this weekend.

I am not sure about the far north, but I will more than likely be living in Spain and France for the majority of next year. And of course then it will only be a short trip up to Scanditown.

The northern lights are cool, and I have friends in Stockholm and Vaasa (I'm not sure how you spell it, but its a few hours from Helsinki), so perhaps a mid year venture up north is on the cards.

They love him here and when they say he is the best player in the game in Australia, they all collectively agree. At the same time he can't do that much with no momentum in the forwards.

If I'm in the vacinity at the time, the Monte Carlo masters would be a must see. The only clay tourneys I've ever been too are a bunch of low grade challengers, so perhaps a slight rise in grade.

I wonder if Ronald will show his face again this year.

If you want some info about the clay tourneys and the other good stuff that makes up a good tourney let me know.

I have been to the Monte Carlo Masters three times and it's great, it was expensive, then again nothing in Monaco is cheap, at least the last time it wasn't so bad.

Barcelona is a good tournament and I have had many friends that have gone there, but yes an increase in class is needed.

Just hope Fromberg is around, then again he and Wilander won the Oldies doubles at the AO. My equal favourite Swede and the best Tassie player of all time what a combo.

Nadal wasn't as well known in 2004, but he had Lleyton under the pump in that first set. He won the first 2 points to go up the break of serve, but then lost the next 7 :sad:. He held steady for the 2nd set as well, before conceding the match after losing another tb.

I had the thing saved on a Word doc, but here is the Cañas v Henman match report.

Whilst this was going on Cañas and Henman were slugging it out on the old court 1. I was at the scoreboard and I saw Henman had won the first 2 sets and they were very close. I tried to get into the match, but it was an effort with all those English backpackers who normally don't give a shit about tennis, just there to cheer on Tiger Tim. One he is not one of my faves and two I have always admired Canas, so it was imperative to get there and give Canas some support. We got there through the third set, and we could only see the scoreboard for about 7 games as people were not moving.

Then Niclas a Swedish friend of mine and I stood one of the garbage bins, and then we could see over the top of people and catch a glimpse of the match. Unfortunately the security guys, didn't appreciate our innovative solutions and told us to get down twice. Then Canas won the 3rd set and we got in the match.
Niclas and I were in hostile territory amongst most of the English fans, but to be fair they helped give the match some great atmosphere and most of the non-English were going for Canas, so there was plenty of chanting and noise which made them both perform at excellent levels. Henman kept playing his chip and charge game, and Canas the warrior was just running and running and his lobs were of the highest quality which kept him in the match.

The fourth set was more of the same and Henman had many chances on the Canas serve, but he was either passed, lobbed or just made an unforced error. I said Niclas to if Canas wins this set, there is no way he is losing. He loves the battle and this was made for him, and also Tiger Tim isn't known for his mental fortitude in the tighest situations. Then Canas takes his chance and wins the fourth set 7-5.
We are into the 5th and the English fans are a bit nervous, so was I to an extent, even though I had full confidence in Canas being successful in this match. Then the 5th Timmy is playing very good aggressive tennis and he breaks Canas at 3-1 and then holds to take it to a 4-1 lead. Still I just knew Canas had it in him to comeback, he plays a great game and breaks Henman at 4-3 and then holds for 4-4. The crowd were even getting louder for Henman, but there were a few of us Canas fans who made our presence felt.

Neither player was giving anything less than 100% and I felt that Henman's would crack. He lead 7-6 and 0-30 but Canas held and voila t 7-7. His arm had turned to jelly and Canas was circling Henman like a lion does his prey and got the break at 8-7. I had made a choking gesture that some of the fans liked but others didn't appreciate as much.

Now the crowd were trying to will Timmy over, Canas played a very solid game, though there were a few second serves at 130km/h, but he managed to get to 40-15. Henman then saved match points and Canas got to advantage. The match point was an absolute fitting way to win the match after a short rally, Henman approaches the net and the Canas running like his life depending on it and smacks this huge forehand up the line which was a great way to end this very entertaining and gripping match. The crowd gave both of them a standing ovation that seemed to last for ages and it was deserved.

Henman hit 100 winners and Canas had made only 30 unforced errors and he played the very important points much better. So all in all a great day Nalle won easily, Pavel and Gaudio won. I am happy that Arazi won and I was disappointed for Costa, but he hates playing night matches and it showed. Come on Arazi take out the Poo and Feds beat Hewitt on Australia Day would be fantastic.

Well, I love handball. Unfortunately, I can't play but I'm trying to watch as much as I can on tv. Which isn't much, given that it's not among the most popular sports around here. My fave player is Jackson Richardson, followed, very closely, by Bertrand Gille. I'm happy that Jack came back in the Club of Chambéry, because that leaves me some chance to see him play. :)

Good man handball is a great game and used to play it school and the funny thing was of the Olympic tickets in Sydney the prelims were only $ 19.

It's one of the few womens sports that I will actually watch and the whole Denmark v Norway situation was funny at the 2000 Games. Camilla Andersen one of the best female players in the world was going out with Mia Hundvin who is one of the most popular bisexuals in Norway, at that time and they were joking about them being together before the big game :)

Mia has left Camilla and is now with the one of the best snowboarders of all time and a man with principles Terje Håkonsen.

Btw, the good guys won the Norwegian election and that means Jens Stoltenberg will be PM.

I was there for the full 2 weeks. I didn't bother going to see the swimming - I race against most those guys anyways, so no real attraction there. I went to 2 morning heats of athletics, the road race and time trial for cycling - because it was free and not crowded :), the European handball for 3 sessions, the gold medal waterpolo match - I got free tickets :lol:, a baseball night match, soccer in canberra, beach volleyball in bondi - I have family there. I think that's it.

I now wish they had taken place when I was a little older, so that I could appreciate it all more, I doubt the Olympics will be making their way back down here for at least 40 years :sad:.

I went to the athletics, marathon, plenty of handball, 3 football games and 2 days of the tennis. It was a great time as we met plenty of people from all around the world and in the early days the Homebush brewery was doing well at that time.

Free tickets are the way to go for sure and I actually worked on a short term contract for the ticketing people, it had its advantages for sure.

The handball was great atmosphere and one moment was really funny. There were 4 Swedes, 4 Croatians, 2 Frenchies, 2 Norwegians and we just started talking and got a great pic out the front of the stadium.

Yep, baseball and handball were the 2 sports with cheapest tickets from memory, but handball is clearly the superior sport, the other one is known to me as monkeyball.

I don't know what you thought, but I found that many of the volunteers I encountered had a bad attitude about them. Those stupid coloured shirts turned ordinary people into wannabe nightclub bouncers.

Baseboring, just fat guys with cameltoe hitting full tosses. The wrestling was cheap as well I remember when they rang the call centre and I had to tell them, that you are not going to see the Rock, Stone Cold or Hulk Hogan.

Handball is a great sport and even when the women play it's watchable and that's saying something. The Swedish men are the big chokers they got silver in 92, 96 and 00. They were favoured to win in 2000 and 1992. I had 2 Swedish guys staying with us and we thought we were going to win the gold, well Norway for the women, it didn't work out like that sadly.

I don't know what you thought, but I found that many of the volunteers I encountered had a bad attitude about them. Those stupid coloured shirts turned ordinary people into wannabe nightclub bouncers.

Some of them maybe were like that, but most of them were fine by me, the bigger problem was not being able to get into the bar in the second week. Though taking the piss out of the guy in the Uncle Sam outfit was fun.

speaking of Norwegian rednecks, one of those travel shows on the excellent free-to-air television we have down here did a piece on Norway a few weeks back, did you manage to catch it? Not that you would have learnt anything new.

For a lot of the handball matches I was having to explain the rules, but once they sit through a match or two, they can get most of them. The whole passive play was a hard one, though sometimes to take the piss I did say offside. To an Aussie the best way to explain it is a mix of water polo, indoor football and basketball.

It's interesting when I read guide books about Norway and what they say about the main places that I have lived in or other places that I have visited. Even better when you know of or find places that aren't listed there.

It's always better to give the people what they want and yes feeding them stuff about the polar bears in Norway and the kangaroos in Aus is always a good thing.

I remember one of my friends was coming back from the US and he was sitting next to these yuppie Americans and he was telling them about all the cool places to go. He said Redferm is the place to be and mentioned it to a taxi driver, it must have been funny as these guys had suits on.
